In a press release yesterday, Majesco and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. — a terrifying and shockingly appropriate name for her corporation — announced a partnership. Yes, the people who brought you Cooking Mama will now be publishing games based on the most successful homemaker of all time.

I, for one, welcome Martha Stewart into gaming. I’m hoping that her products become so successful that videogames can merge into the things that she already does. Could you imagine an episode of her television show where she demonstrates how to make a lovely centerpiece out of broken grey-brick GameBoy systems? 

The one game I wish they’d make that we will never see? A financial simulator. But, really, who did it better?
